Born in Bayport, and graduated Sachem High School. I have a really bad accent, root for a horrible baseball team and can pronounce the most difficult American Indian tribe names this side of Aquebogue. Before I started my radio career I was a radio fan. Driving my 26 foot box truck across the Expressway and Sunrise listening to my heroes tell me about who was playing at the Beach that night and where Megadeth was signing copies of Risk. I spent my weekends in Port Jeff watching my friend’s bands play. When I got my first break in radio it moved me to Atlantic City and gave me the opportunity to work with bands like Alice in Chains, Korn and Weezer. For a kid who grew up on grunge and steady doses of metal, I should have been in my glory but there was something missing. I wasn’t home. There was no Nassau Coliseum where 40 of us in high school piled into a bus to see Typo Negative and Life of Agony. No lake with mysterious legends and no beer and wing nights. At the Shark I have everything I need. The greatest music in the greatest place. Yeah the traffic sucks. Yeah it’s expensive. It’s also home. So now I can talk to you about my Candlebox and Mother Love Bone obsessions, rock out to some ACDC and meet you at the tattoo shop for some ink, because I’m where I belong. On Long Island, at the Shark.
